    Pronounced 'zay-muck-uh', this unusual Plantation revives the 19th century Jamaican-style of 100% pot still rums in an expression that reveals some traditional "Rum Funk". These are sometimes described as aromas and flavours of black banana and flambéed pineapple, locally called "Hogo," an Anglicization of the French term "Haut Goût" (high taste). The rum stems from Plantation's latest investment in the Caribbean's 'Long Pond' and 'Clarendon' distilleries. Maison Ferrand now owns a third of each after purchasing the West Indies Rum Distillery in 2017. These acquisitions have made Alexandre Gabriel's dream of blending a 100% pot still Jamaican rum a reality.

    He adds, "With Xaymaca Special Dry, I wanted to dive into the iconic culture that is unique to Jamaican rum. I wanted to work with these complex flavors of overripe exotic fruits with an almost "animal intensity". We can still find certain white rums with this famous "rum funk". I think, however, that this great terroir expresses itself perfectly in an aged rum. That is why we are launching Xaymaca Special Dry, which is a tribute to this ancestral culture of rum".
